  COTA to provide free Wi-Fi on entire 444-bus fleet

From:  The Columbus Dispatch:

Like many, Dublin’s Tristan Stover, a Columbus State student who rides the bus to and from school every day, wants online access all the time.

That can be difficult for those who don’t pay extra for unlimited internet access on their smart phone or other devices and for those who ride public buses.

“I try not to use data when I don’t have Wi-Fi,” Stover, 19, said, his smartphone in his hand as he waited for a bus Downtown. “I try to be responsible about it.”

When he hops on any Central Ohio Transit Authority bus after Jan. 31, Stover won’t have to worry about it. That’s when COTA will provide free Wi-Fi on all 444 of its buses, becoming the first large U.S. city to do that, said Michael Carroll, COTA’s information technology director.

“We’ve made a commitment to customer service,” Carroll said. “It’s giving (riders) options they don’t have now.”

COTA has been working on the project for about a year. It has two parts.

The first is to upgrade COTA’s fleet to 4G service, allowing wireless internet access at higher speeds on buses by Dec. 1. That is being done to increase communication between buses and COTA. Now, COTA buses communicate electronically once per minute with COTA computers to track their location. That helps administrators know if there are any breakdowns or other problems and if buses are on schedule.

With the upgrade, those electronic transmissions will be made every 15 seconds, Carroll said, making locations of each bus known to COTA  -  and riders using an app that tracks COTA buses  -  so all will know where the bus is in real time.

The 4G upgrade also allows COTA to provide Wi-Fi for its entire fleet. “The bus is really a rolling hot spot driving around the city,” Carroll said.   READ MORE >
